Editors Corner

You've most likely heard about the rising sea levels, and up until recently it has apparently been on the order of inches per decade. According to a paper published this last week, "In just 2 years, 2009 and 2010, sea levels along the Atlantic coast north of New York City jumped up by more than 5 inches". Click here

Meanwhile, on the west coast of the U.S., California communities are apparently taking control of their energy futures, making it more likely that they are using cheap, clean energy. Click here

Speaking of clean energy, have you heard of the new Dutch Wind Wheel? It doesn't have any moving parts making it much safer for birds. The technology is still in the research and development stages, but it sounds promising. Click here

Sea level “jumps” 5 inches. Probably nothing to worry about
Climate change is a disaster in slow-motion: The global temperature creeps up by fractions-of-a-degree each year, the seas rise inches every decade. Except, apparently, when they do much more. Exhibit A: In just two years, 2009 and 2010, sea levels along the Atlantic coast north of New York City jumped up by more than 5 inches, according to a paper published this week in the journal Nature Communications. That might not seem like much on its own, but consider that, according to the latest report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, global sea levels are rising at a rate of less than a half an inch each year, and that’s causing all sorts of havoc. For a while now, climate models have projected incidents of “extreme sea-level rise,” when changes in ocean currents and weather patterns cause the oceans to claw their way quickly inland and swamp seaside communities — but this is the first time scientists have documented this actually happening. The researchers behind the study, from the University of Arizona and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, call the 2009-2010 event “unprecedented during the entire history of the tide gauge records.”

Something to Contemplate

The Reality of Quantum Weirdness
IN Akira Kurosawa’s film “Rashomon,” a samurai has been murdered, but it’s not clear why or by whom. Various characters involved tell their versions of the events, but their accounts contradict one another. You can’t help wondering: Which story is true? But the film also makes you consider a deeper question: Is there a true story, or is our belief in a definite, objective, observer-independent reality an illusion? This very question, brought into sharper, scientific focus, has long been the subject of debate in quantum physics. Is there a fixed reality apart from our various observations of it? Or is reality nothing more than a kaleidoscope of infinite possibilities? This month, a paper published online in the journal Nature Physics presents experimental research that supports the latter scenario — that there is a “Rashomon effect” not just in our descriptions of nature, but in nature itself. Over the past hundred years, numerous experiments on elementary particles have upended the classical paradigm of a causal, deterministic universe. Consider, for example, the so-called double-slit experiment. We shoot a bunch of elementary particles — say, electrons — at a screen that can register their impact. But in front of the screen, we place a partial obstruction: a wall with two thin parallel vertical slits. We look at the resulting pattern of electrons on the screen. What do we see?

Celiac disease in children nearly tripled in two decades as Roundup spraying increased over 300%
The missing link behind what causes gluten intolerance and celiac disease, and why prevalence of these two autoimmune conditions has risen dramatically over the past several decades seemingly without cause, may have more to do with how conventional wheat is grown in the U.S. today rather than what it contains naturally. Like with the massive rise in autism spectrum disorders, the scientific community is trying to explain away the near-tripling of celiac cases over the past 20 years as being a result of improved detection and diagnosis techniques. Many people simply weren't aware that the condition existed back in the 1990s, some scientists claim, dismissing any other outside causes. But the evidence increasingly points to the chemicals applied to modern wheat crops, primarily in the U.S., as a major driver behind this epidemic of supposed gluten allergies. Monsanto's Roundup herbicide, which contains glyphosate, is often applied to conventional wheat crops at the end of their life cycle, leaving behind residues of the chemical formula on the wheat consumed by millions. This little-known process, which was recently brought to light by The Healthy Home Economist, allows farmers to harvest wheat early and produces a slightly higher yield.

Avoiding BPA? Meet the Controversial New Plastic Label
If you’re avoiding BPA because of its endocrine-disrupting properties, there’s a new plastic label that you may want to keep on your radar: EA free. But it’s controversial. More and more consumers are shopping for BPA (bisphenol-A) free plastic as evidence mounts that BPA is bad for our health. This endocrine disruptor leaches from plastic into our food and drink, and it’s linked to a slew of health problems including breast cancer, intestinal inflammation, and obesity. BPA isn’t the only endocrine disruptor used in plastic manufacturing. In fact, many BPA free plastics contain BPS (bisphenol-S), which is just as harmful to our bodies, if not more so. BPS disrupts brain cell growth and may cause hyperactivity. Not exactly something that you want in your baby bottle or sippy cup. Companies that produce EA free plastic claim that their products are safer, because they don’t leach any endocrine disrupting chemicals. Right now, the EA free label is embroiled in controversy.

The Battle Over EA Free Plastic
There are two companies claiming that they’ve cracked the code for producing EA free plastic: Eastman Chemical and PlastiPure. And they just finished duking it out in court after PlastiPure’s marketing materials began questioning whether Eastman Chemical’s “Tritan” plastics are really EA free.

Here’s Why You Should Drink Organic Tea
Here’s a fun fact about commercial tea: The first time pesticides are washed off tea leaves is when you steep tea in your cup. To be fair, the amount of commercial pesticides in your cup is “a very low amount,” according to Peter Goggi, a spokesman for The Tea Association of the USA. But if “no” amount is better than “low” amount, your only choice is organic tea, says Chris Olsen of Teatulia, the Denver-based company that grows tea organically on 3,000 acres in northern Bangladesh. “Organic tea is best for you,” Olsen says. “Pesticides on regular teas are not rinsed off until you infuse it in your cup.” Teatulia, which owns one of the largest organic tea gardens in the world, grows USDA-certified organic teas using organic cover crops, manure it buys from locals, rainwater irrigation, and natural pesticides like pulverized leaves from neem trees that bugs avoid. In addition to not getting a gulp of toxic pesticides, here are more reasons to drink organic tea.
Organic is good for the ecosystem: Conventional gardens often are denuded of bugs and other living things that are collateral damage from toxic pesticide use. Organic gardens support ecosystems and don’t contaminate local water supplies. In organic tea gardens, Olsen has seen birds, spiders, deer, even a tiger.

This Dutch Wind Wheel Is Part Green Tech Showcase, Part Architectural Attraction
The Dutch have a long history of harnessing wind power. As far back as the 13th century, residents used windmills to pump water out of marshlands and lakes to create useable farmland. Along the way, the windmill became an icon of the country, along with the tulip fields that the wind-powered pumps made possible. Now, a group of Rotterdam-based companies wants to update the windmill for the the 21st century, while drawing millions of tourists to the Netherlands’ second-largest city and kick starting a local green-energy economy in the process. The group’s proposed Dutch Wind Wheel is an ambitious, 570-foot-tall structure that would harness the wind to generate electricity, without the noise-polluting, mechanical moving parts of traditional wind turbines, which previous studies have shown kill hundreds of thousands of birds a year. The Wind Wheel’s design, made of two massive rings and an underwater foundation, plans to incorporate other green technologies, including solar panels, rainwater capture and biogas creation. The biogas will be created from the collected waste of residents of the 72 apartments and 160 hotel rooms that are planned for the inner ring. The outer ring is set to house 40 cabins that move along a rail like a roller coaster, giving tourists a view of the city and the surrounding countryside, much like the London Eye or Las Vegas’ High Roller, which became the world’s tallest observation wheel when it opened in 2014.

Something Worth Knowing

California communities seize control of their energy futures
An energy revolution is breaking out in California and a few other states, one that could radically increase the amount of renewable energy available to citizens and end the tyranny of foot-dragging utilities. Outside of the rapidly falling costs of solar power, it’s just about my main source of domestic optimism these days. I’m talking about community choice, or, in the horrid legalese, “community choice aggregation.” I’ve discussed it before in passing, but it’s starting to seriously catch on, so I want to take a closer look.

Say a town, city, or county is dissatisfied with the power it gets from its utility — it’s too expensive, or too dirty. One option would be for each municipality to leave its utility and form its own “municipal utility.” That has its advantages, but it’s a pretty huge step, since the municipality would have to take over not only power procurement but grid operation and maintenance, billing, customer service, etc. In many smaller towns, it’s not practical.

On The Lighter Side

White & Gold or Blue & Black? Science of the Mystery Dress
The Internet went bonkers last night over a simple question posed on the social networking site Tumblr: What color is this dress? Some people see the dress as white and gold, while others swear it's blue and black. Some people even flip between the two, or see some combination. Even Taylor Swift and Kanye West weighed in. (For the record, the dress really is blue and black.) What’s going on? David Williams, a vision scientist at the University of Rochester in New York, has a theory. Light is made up of different wavelengths, which the brain perceives as color. Light entering the retina, the light-sensitive part of the eye, activates cone cells that are sensitive to either red, green or blue wavelengths. But the wavelengths your eye detects may not be the wavelengths of the object you're looking at. "Your brain is always confronted with a problem," Williams told Live Science. When you look at an object, the light your eyes see from the object depends on two things: how the object is illuminated, he said, and the intrinsic properties of the object. "So your brain is always working behind the scenes to figure out what the true color of the object is," he said.
